During the last year I have been writing simple answers in my notebook to the question: What is life about?. These fragments evolved into a short poem called OR. and from that poem came the concept for this album.
- OR -
Life is a thought
or slice of bread
or cat’s meow
or diane wakowski
or sex and life
or sonic mush
or technology developer
or walking the valleys of the mind
or fantastic sound
or wave machines
or live psychics twenty four/seven
or polishing the mirrors of psychosis
or burt lancaster with tony curtis
or paulette goddard with erich maria remarche
or charlie chaplin with everybody’s wives
or strolling, skipping, library tinker, our song, our voice
forever, silence, night, loss.
Instrumentation: Guitar, shruti box, field recordings, amplified objects, organ and voice
Conversational in track 2 is between Robin Birsner, Lance Austin Olsen and an unknown gentleman in a church cemetery in England in 2010, after attending the funeral for Olsen’s mother.
